Expert to discuss lasers in periodontics in free webinar
DUBAI, UAE: In a free Dental Tribune Study Club webinar on Thursday, 13 June, host Dr Rana al-Falaki will explore the use of all-tissue lasers in periodontal therapy. Like in other areas of dentistry, there is an increasing trend towards minimally invasive periodontics, for which laser treatment has great potential. This webinar will outline the latest research, detail advantages for both patient-centred and clinical outcomes and demonstrate the use of lasers in flapless bone regeneration.
During the webinar, al-Falaki will discuss in more depth the benefits of water lasers and, to a lesser extent, 940 nm diode lasers, helping to translate scientific research into practical and clinical use. She will also be covering subjects such as peri-implantitis treatment, flapless periodontal therapy, and cosmetic periodontal procedures such as depigmentation.
Al-Falaki has been a UK-registered specialist in periodontics since 2003. Now working at a specialist practice where she is conducting research on laser applications and the use of the Er,Cr:YSGG laser in periodontics and implantology, she also lectures internationally and has published several articles on the subject. A pioneer in the field and founder of the Global Periodontal Laser User Society, al-Falaki is also an honorary lecturer at the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral and Craniofacial Sciences at King’s College London, a fellow of the International Academy for Dental-Facial Esthetics, and a visiting professor at the Taipei Medical University in Taiwan. She is on the peer review panel for several laser journals and an editorial board member of Lasers in Dental Science. Her clinic has won the Global Health & Pharma Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Award for Best Periodontal Practice in the UK for the past four years and she has received awards for the most innovative periodontal therapy and for global excellence in her field.
The 1-hour webinar, titled “Laser periodontics and implantology”, will be broadcast live on Thursday, 13 June, at 8 a.m.CET. Attendance is free of charge after easy registration on the website. Participants will be able to ask questions via a chat window and have the opportunity to earn a continuing education credit by completing a multiple-choice questionnaire on the topic.
